CANHR Releases “Your Right to Leave”: a Guide for Battling Forced Placement in Long-Term Care Facilities
CANHR has posted a new free guide for long-term care consumers, “Your Right to Leave” a guide to the rights of long-term care consumers to be free from false imprisonment. Residents are often illegally held in nursing homes or assisted living facilities against their will despite no judicial decision or legal process. “Your Right to Leave” explains how and why this happens but more importantly, details residents’ rights to be free from forced placement and gives guidance on remedies. “Your Right to Leave” is the second guide in a CANHR series, following “Your Right l to Visit” about visitation issues in long-term care facilities and hospitals.
